Really great product, though I feel like the price point is too high for most individuals to purchase it (it seems perfect for businesses though). I would love to see the company involve their community more: for example letting customers make cards with their own terms on them, or letting them contribute ideas for the next set that you sell. I love the focus on analog though - I feel like not enough people in tech appreciate that. Also reminds me of http://cardsagainsthumanity.com/ @CAH

@llukech I think you're right about the price. But fewer sales with a higher price gives us the possibility to focus on R&D. Something that would be hard if we were selling & distributing loads of kits for a lower price. FYI: We're a small company without (external) investors. We actually do involve people in both direction of deciding on which new kits to develop and also letting people add new cards that's been missing. Although we can't really take total credit for all the content. It has been loads of experts involved in each deck, inputting what they thing is most important. Now we involve a set of people assessing which cards should stay, and which should get discarded when we revise of new kits, this been based on both external feedback and internal insights. Revising is way different when one do an analogue product though. We often have to print a fair amount of cards each printing which makes the version cycle go quite slow if one compare to the the speed of revisions for digital apps. New decks will include a few blank cards for people to be able to add their own things. After developing and releasing first MethodKits two years ago, I found a whole world of kits. Check our collected research on our blog. http://www.methodkit.com/researc... Many of having quite diverse mechanics. Cards also been the the leading design pattern for both Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and trello.

Hej @olamoller Can you tell us more about MethodKit? How did you find the idea?

@gregoiregilbert Needed MethodKit myself basically, but later understood that other people wanted it too. I've been doing lots of projects in the past but felt I needed a fast way to get overview over new projects. A way to assess what's been done and what's left to do. I started to compile a checklist by asking lots of friends whose used to do projects & entrepreneurs what they thought was the most important aspects, along with summarizing my own experience on the most crucial topics to remember when doing a project. The format of cards came along because I wanted a good and dynamic tool, a flexible conversation starter to quickly understand what to do next. After that it has been growing beyond projects into new fields, like app development, gender equality and startups/bizdev.
